NY Gov. Cuomo: Last 100 Days Were 'Hell'

(ABC's "Good Morning America")

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told ABC News on Wednesday the past 100 days have been "hell," noting his state had "the worst per capita" death rate in the U.S., adding it was "worse than some countries."

Cuomo told "Good Morning America" on Wednesday he is "concerned" about coronavirus infection spikes in other states, noting: "I'm concerned because it's human nature, we test every day, we get numbers everyday, but we can't lose the focus how they behave today is what we will see tomorrow."

When asked to describe the past 100 days in a single word, the governor replied: "Hell. Can I say that? We were the worst per capita across the globe; we were worse than some countries."

He added New Yorkers take the credit for lowering the rate of infection in the state.

"I gave them the facts literally every day and they acted responsibly," Cuomo said, adding officials are still uncertain of whether there will be a second outbreak.

"We still don't know where we are going with this," he said. "I talk to global experts everyday and nobody really knows if there's a second wave or if there's not a second wave."

Cuomo also dismissed criticism he did not shut down the state fast enough, saying they "didn't have the information" at the time.

"I think New Yorkers who died, they didn't die because we failed them, we got them a hospital bed, which we didn't know that we could, nurses with PPE, with a mask, with a gown, doctors, ventilators, everyone who died we did everything we could," he said.
